Giflor's ELP (Eco Low Profile) bottle caps are the quintessential example of products which are ideal for e-commerce. Not only are the products compact in size but they are also highly impact resistant. The smaller size and subsequent lighter weight ensures reduced space requirement and easier transportation.

The patented ELP plastic cap line was developed to reduce environmental impact both during the production process as well as in the supply chain and is ideal for use with personal care, healthcare, food, baby and household products.

560 Push lock closure

Giflor's bi-color 560 is an asset for e-commerce as it is highly resistant to impact and the form also ensures that the pack is leak resistant, with no risk of accidental opening during transit, yet the innovative and ergonomic push-lock system is easy for the consumer to open and close with one-hand use.


Giflor offers a number of lining options for standard neck finishes in assorted neck diameters and threads. Maintaining the integrity of the pack in the supply chain and ensuring that there is no accidental opening, options include IHS, lift'n'peel and pressure sensitive liners for PET and PE/PP containers.
